For bloggers out there it's good to know that it's relatively simple to subscribe to your blog posts through Edmodo so that your new posts automatically post on your Edmodo feed. Glogster is also easy to post in Edmodo among a variety of other educator friendly tools.
Beyond the obvious classroom uses, Edmodo is also an excellent source of professional networking and development. There are a number of professional Edmodo communities teachers can join including ISTE, Discovery Ed, Glogster, as well as content area communities all of which share libraries and ideas. The variety of communities is growing daily so if they don't have what you are looking for today, check back next week.
Don't put Edmodo into a box of purely informative use. Creativity is possible with Edmodo! For example, in 6th grade ELA we cover mythology. I decided to help my students to better understand the Greek gods, goddesses, heroes, and mythological creatures we would create a social network called greekbook. Each student was assigned a different character and had to conduct research and create a facebook profile for that character. We used a Microsoft Word template to recreate the facebook profile page. Then we created postings and facebook convos using http://fakeconvos.com/. Now that I have discovered Edmodo, next year we will definitely use Edmodo instead. I intend to have them pretend to be their character for a week and require them to post status and respond to others' posts at least once a day. I created a sample of what it would look like using the fake convos my students created this past school year. Check greekbook out for inspiration. Imagine doing the same for historical figures or ordinary citizens during a historical event or scientific discovery.
